Cherokee Heights Middle School Food Pantry Collection – February 16 – 10 am – 1 pm

posted in: Food Pantry, Volunteer Opportunities | 0

Hello CMNNA Neighbors,

We will be collecting food donations for the Cherokee Heights Middle School on
Saturday, February 16, 2019 from 10:00 am to 1:00 pm.

The need is great, as 57% of the 540 students at CHMS qualify for free or reduced cost lunches, and that 10% of the student body identifies as homeless.

If you would like volunteers to pick up your donation, please send an email to Please fill out your address and any special instructions you may have. We are also
looking for drivers with a helper to pick up items.

The list of requested items are all non perishables.

  • Canned Goods; spaghetti with meatballs, ravioli, soups, beans, tuna fish and chicken, fruits,
  • Boxed Goods; macaroni and cheese, pasta, rice in 1# bags or boxes, cereals and oatmeal.
  • Vegetable oil
  • Peanut butter and jelly
